SPECIALISTS IN OWNER’S REPRESENTATION
Wember Project Managers serve as third-party owner’s representatives in managing capital improvement projects, working in both an independent arrangement or as in-house augmentation staff. Our mobile office culture allows us to work from our client’s office, the construction trailer, or anywhere that we are needed.
OUR SERVICES INCLUDE:
Setting up a project’s initial plan is the most critical step to achieving a successful outcome. At the onset of the planning, we work with the owner to create an initial budget and schedule that meets the goals and constraints of the project. Our long history of managing capital improvement projects provides us the knowledge and benefit of lessons-learned as we formulate a well-vetted plan and build a team dedicated to delivering a facility on-time and within budget.
After properly defining the scope of services, we lead a procurement process that results in hiring the design team best suited for the project. Upon acceptance of the project’s design program, we work closely with the myriad of consultants and public agencies to navigate the entitlement process and remaining elements of the design phase. Our team monitors the master budget and all project finances while adhering to deadlines to ensure project momentum is maintained. The licensed architects on our staff are skilled at third-party design reviews, which we conduct for every project that we manage.
Wember has experience with the myriad of construction delivery methods, including hard bid, CMaR/CMGC and design-build, and will guide you through the proper delivery method selection and execution. Our team works closely with the selected general contractor to continue value engineering options, construction phasing, and safety for workers and users. We provide a detailed pay application approval process and manage quality control markers to ensure projects are delivered as specified in design documents.
From punch list to the warranty walk Wember is by your side closing out the details working towards the grand opening. Our team manages the details of moving, close-out documentation and final approvals. All project related items and systems are properly tested and managed to completion.
Wember’s extensive network of contacts assisted us in making decisions and helped estimate future operating costs. Wember provided me with technical assistance and education to assure that I spoke with authority and credibility with my constituents about design, construction and project budget issues.
By hiring Wember you will receive direction, support, and leadership. They are reliable and accessible and the service has far exceeded our expectations.
As the Vice President of Facilities for Colorado State University Pueblo, I am held accountable for the financial success of capital improvement projects. For the past six years, the Wember team have kept me informed while remaining unburdened by the daily management.
Wember’s leadership on the project not only produced a project completed ahead of schedule and under budget, but their commitment to the project kept our remote team engaged and informed. I recommend any professional organization to hire Wember.
The Wember team have managed the many complexities of the project with professionalism and tact, building consensus on making difficult decisions to keep the project moving forward.
I truly underestimated the timelines, budgets, regulations, and other legal issues that would have to be dealt with in quick order. Wember’s vigilance, experience, and foresight are the primary reasons we continue to stay on track as he has handled all of these issues in quick order time and time again.
